We are maybe halfway through the flow here in SC. Bees are packing it in, even pulled some of the first honey to be caped and its very light in color and taste great.
I'm inspecting to see when I need to add supers for honey but I've been leaving the brood chamber alone so far, I hate to go all the way to the brood when they are so busy.
Do yall inspect the brood chamber (checking on the Q's laying) during the flow or just let them work for now?

Leave the brood chamber alone, unless you suspect a problem. If you are in a nectar flow and want as much honey produced as is possible then anything other than checking to see if supers are needed will interrupt production for that day. Then it will rain the next day. lol So stay out of the brood chamber.
